I have a 2008 Impala and I am very frustrated ,I have only had it 3 years,my radio goes on and off,has been doing that for months,if you take the key out of the ignition it keeps chiming ,you have to put the key back in and turn it on then off,my back defroster quit working,my onstar won't work because of the radio and my battery has been dead several times after coming out to my car from work,I took it to my dealer and of course the only warranty left is the powertrain ! I bought a new car because my used car was breaking down on me,I had no car payment though,now I am breaking down and paying 450 a month,I am so angry ,now I am going to have to pay a dealer big bucks for repairs,I thought Chey was dependable and stood behing their cars but I am starting to reconsider.

I do not know what happened to my message before. As a result I will repeat. Everyone should call 1-888-327-4236 DOT Auto Safety Line to create a RECALL of this problem as I did.
You may get results. GOOD LUCK

I am responding also, as I have a 2005 Chev Impala and the speedodometer, the overheat monitor both go crazy constantly. I have been watching for a recall for about 2 years. It is going to cost $500 to fix this problem. I find very frustrating as I have had this problem for about 2 years and have to constantly judge my speed and keep a check on my radiator as I cannot trust my factory installed equipment. I have never owned another brand vehicle other than a Chev and this is the first time I have been truly disappointed with my vehicle. I am now thinking about going for a Nissan in the future as I have spoken with numerous Nissan owners who seem to never have electrical issues.
Sometimes the security system causes the car not to start for no reason and you have to wait 10 minutes to start your car.
I am also aware that my local police dept impalas also have this issue. It is sad when a police officer is going on a call and his car will not start and he had to wait 10 minutes to "protect and serve" the citizens because the police dept chose a chev impala.
Thank you for your time.

The "no-start" problem is probably the "passlock sensor" The other problems with the guages may be related to a defective BCM (Body Control Module)
Chevys are Junk: My 02 Impala needed a BCM, Passlock Sensor, Intake manifold gasket, ISS steering shaft is noisy, high low beam combination switch was defective.
Chevy's are Lemons!

#392 of 446 2006 Chevy Impala Brake Light Issue
Feb 07, 2011 (8:36 am)
I've changed the bulbs on my brake light but no luck also my turn signals went out. I've checked through the manual to see which fuses I should check but I can't seem to figure out which ones power the turning signals and brake lights. Anyone can tell me which ones to look at? I have the manual but nothing specifically says "brake light".
